Presently we use LDAP for authentication and for enrolment. However until the student actual logs in for the first time, they do not appear in their course. And our faculty complain about why they do not see their full class when they go in.
Is there a way to do this differently so that students once enrolled will automatically appear in their courses - without having to do the initial first login? Would it be better to do a bulk enrolment instead?
Presently we are running Moodle 2.6. We have 2 OU's set up, one for the students accounts and the 2nd one for the actual courses. We have a script which we run against a csv file from our student information system. The csv file contains the students first/last name, email address and courses (as CourseID's). The script sets the student up in AD and also puts them in the correct class group - in the course OU. This all works fine, its just that the students do not appear in their courses until first login.
Thanks for any input on other possibilities.
